What are R&D tax credits?
R&D tax credits are a valuable incentive offered by the UK government to support companies involved in innovative projects within the fields of science and technology.
By engaging in R&D projects, companies can benefit either through a reduction in their tax liability or by receiving a cash refund.
By leveraging R&D tax credits, companies can use the financial support to drive innovation, explore new ideas, and ultimately contribute to the advancement of various industries. Prior to 1st April 2023, companies could claim a 130% uplift on their incurred R&D expenditure under the SME scheme. For periods after 1st April 2023, companies can now expect to receive an uplift of 86%.
Qualifying costs can include:
- Staffing (including salaries)
Who is eligible for R&D tax credits?
Hundreds of thousands of UK organisations are eligible to apply for SME R&D tax credits. You just have to:
- Be a limited company registered in the UK, with fewer than 500 employees and an annual turnover below £100 million (or a balance sheet below £86 million)
- Be involved in researching or developing new technology for a product or service – that isn’t copying another business, but involves genuine uncertainty of success.

If your company is larger than an SME, you may be eligible for R&D expenditure credit (RDEC).
RDEC is designed for larger companies that do not meet the SME threshold, for example; if they have been in receipt of notified state aid such as Innovate UK and Smart Grants.
From 1st April 2023, companies can claim up to 20% of their eligible R&D expenditure as above the line credit. This can be used to offset outstanding corporation tax liability or lead to a payable credit (depending on a firm’s tax position).
You don’t have to use an agent to submit R&D tax credits; however, it is encouraged to partner with an expert in UK tax law who has in-depth understanding into R&D tax credits.
It is also important to note that HMRC has recently introduced additional criteria which must be satisfied before a claim can be submitted. If a claim is submitted incorrectly, it can face lengthy enquiries, and penalties.
